This Oasis Value Set consists of a genuine Oasis All-Weather Water Bottle (8 ounce size) and the Oasis Basic Hold-Guard designed specifically to fit this bottle accurately and safely.
The Oasis All-Weather Bottle is a long time favorite. The bottle is made of natural "frosted-looking" polyethylene that withstands most temperature changes without cracking. The bottle retains water well and is known as a reliable item with hobbyist pet owners and breeders alike. The combination of the bottle's silks screen design color and cap color with the powder-coating of the guard allows for color-coordinated cages and accessories. The drinking tube size on this 8 ounce All Weather Bottle is correct for hamsters, gerbils, mice, fancy rats, sugar gliders and pygmy hedgehogs. Some people who breed and raise show rabbits or guinea pigs use this size for baby animals or travel cages.
Benefits & Purposes
The Basic Hold-Guard protects the water bottle and cap from chewing, biting and gnawing damage. The sturdy metal construction is coated with long-lasting powder coating to both smooth the edges as well offer an attractive cage accessory solution.
Directions for Use
HANGING MOUNT: The Hanger-Guard’s adjustable metal hanging strap swings up into place ...hangs from top edge. The easy to adjust hanger strap fits many sizes of aquarium-type pet environments. Simply bend the strap to fit over the top edge of the aquarium. If the bottle needs to be lowered, re-bend the strap a bit closer to its end. If the bottle needs to be higher, re-bend the strap closer to its attachment to the Hold-Guard. The hanging strap may also be passed through cage wires of metal rabbit or guinea pig cages, or through vent-openings in plastic travel carriers.
SOLID WOOD WALL MOUNT: Leave strap in original folded position when attaching to a solid wall with screw or bolt. Using a wood screw that passes through the eyelet that attaches the metal hanging strap, simply attach the guard to the wooden wall or cage side so that the drinking tube of the mounted bottle is positioned at shoulder height to the pet. This option works well in solid sided rabbit hutches and similar cages or reptile habitats.
